city bombing, the reaction after 9/11. nobody said there was one thing that was going to work. look at how extensive the federal government actions they thought, some worked, some don't. the feeling was they were worth trying. that was your standard. that's what you said on friday. if it's worth trying, why not do it. that's your position on armed guards and a lot of people would agree with you yet nothing will having to do with gun safety and up seem to excuse the role that guns play in violence in in society. >> the gun is the tool. the problem is the criminal. every police officer that walks the street knows if you want to control violent crime, take violent criminals off the street. richmond, virginia, they had one of the worst murder rates in the country until they put out the word if you're a drug dealer on the street with a gun, we're going to pick you up and you're going to federal prison. they immediately cut murder with guns by about 60%, 70%. criminal operate outside the system. you got to get them off the street and into treatment. we're not doing this in this country. >

of clout in the city. when an issue like this takes hold and it appeals not on an ideological point of view. so much of the feelings are filtered through the personal stories that fred and i were talking about. when it has that quality, it transcends ideology and it transcends partisanship so when a joe scarborough says i'm not looking at this through the lens of my kids, not through the lens of political advantage, that's a very different way of looking at it and, therefore, has the chance of continuing. >> too often, fred, as we saw in the presidential campaign. the media didsant talk about gun control. >> now president obama clearly shak shaken, like all of us, about what happened in connecticut. that makes it easier for journalists to keep it on the front burner. >> it's not the journalist s responsibility to keep it on the frontburner. >> i disagree. >> we cover the news. we cannot, it is the news this week. it is the news through the holidays, okay. is it going to be the news the first week in january? only if politicians, political leaders and corporate leaders, civic leaders make it

, i love the city left a job you love to do this. that. you said that you might write something else. were you going to do next? >> sure. the good news about this is that for me, when writing this book, there are certain things i could never write about. like any type of ongoing criminal investigation in any of that information is just completely out of bounds for me. you know, there is all sort of grand jury concerns and investigations. when i wrote this book, what i decided to do was instead of doing anything that would require industry permission, a stop to the topics and issues that i knew came nowhere even close to any type of privileges. whether criminal law or otherwise. other privileges as well. as an office, we were required to be under certain things. but i really touch on areas that i did not have to run my butt by the treasury department in any way shape or form. they weren't happy about the hard truth that i tried to deliver in this book. so it really wasn't -- i really didn't do anything or go in any of those areas. you know, sometimes a little frustrating because there

personally is that 18 years ago the city of charleston county county-wide gave me an opportunity to represent him based on values and issues. a couple of years later the folks from the house gave me an opportunity to represent their issues and their values. two years ago the first district gave me an opportunity to represent their issues and values. what i've not ever heard on the campaign trail was besides the fact that you're black or because you're black, here's what we want to do. they've asked me questions about values and issues, and that's an amazing thing. i think it speaks to the evolution of south carolina and of our nation. it speaks to the heart of the good people in our nation and specifically of our state. i would say this -- more importantly than the complexion that i have, i think back to growing up in a single-parent household. i'd love to speak to the single moms out there and say don't give up on your kids. it may get tough, it may be challenging, but all things are truly possible in this nation. i was speaking with jim clyburn, another part of the family here. i was talkin
